Jocks I need some help or advice on a tool box for a dremel rotary tool with the accessory whip, router attachment and about a thousand little pieces. The box it came with is fine but leaves no room for organization. I have 5 of the little Stanley plastic boxes with trays but each already has its own tool type in them(electrical,router,table saw,soldering and plumbing). They are fine but using one would still leave the small accessories unorganized, so I was thinking a tool box with a compartment organizer or a tackle box. So what do you all use or have used? Thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions.

I put all the different bits in a large plastic divider box. The motor (motors, I have several) hang on the back of the workbench.

Shoe box and a suitable sized hunk of styrofoam.

Cheers,

You can never have too many dremel tools. I think I have 3. I hate changing bits.

Tackle box is a good idea.

I went round and round and finally settled on two boxes. A smaller plastic bin box with plenty of compartments for bits and a larger plastic box that I can just toss the dremel into without worrying about the cord, the smaller plastic box fits in as well.

The motors, router attachments ect, flex shaft and pantagraph- I leave out, mostly on shelves around the shop. The bits, collets ect are as pictured, I like the the bit box the one like a drill bit case. They all fit in the red plastic tackle box.

Although the Dremel tool itself is hung up, all hooked up to a foredom foot switch I use a cantelevered tool box to try and keep accesorizational stuff organized.

It’s just a little bit above the tackle box scenario, but not by much except for the larger bottom storage.

But then I’m a tool junky and have more than one model of dremel, and varities of (a little bit bulky) that fit into the bottom of the tool box.

Some of that stuff is so small it can easily get lost, and some of the accessories are a tad on the pricey list, so nxt time yer at a garage sale and see a cantilevered tool box for 15 bucks, it would be worth the investment.

Just my thoughts

Thanks guys or the replies and the box and foam sounds a lot like my router box. I seen a dremel brand box at a auction last year that had big compartments for attachments and smaller ones for smaller accessory accessories like cut off wheels. Then spots for collets and a tray for all accessories with shafts to stand up. I thought I drove the price up to high ($50) with some accessories but now I think a couple more bucks I could have owned it. Anyways thanks again for the replies and I think I will be using a machinists tool box with some modifications.

Have your say...
